UCB Stories

We love to share stories of how God has been working in people’s lives today, because, like the stories in the Bible,
these stories inspire, challenge, encourage and fill us with hope. You can be part of someone’s life changing story
by giving a gift today, and helping UCB to reach more people with God’s Word.


During an extremely anxious and stressful time in my life, I shared my worries and troubles with a friend in church. Often I would be awake through the night and would get out of bed, go downstairs and sit praying and crying in equal measure. On 3 separate occasions, in the middle of the night, I heard something come through my letter box. My friend was also awake and looking for comfort from God through prayer. She lives a short distance from me and regularly received Word for Today. On finding a passage or reading that comforted and led her to understand what God wanted for her, she had copied it out and put it through my door at 3am! She gave me everything I needed at an impossibly difficult time: God's promise that He will never let go of me, a written passage I could go back to time and again, and the love that comes from a true friend. Although I now have the UCB Word for Today sent to me, I still treasure those handwritten notes, they are a symbol of where I was and where I am now. Thank you, UCB, for everything you are in God's love.

Over the last 4 years, I’ve been changed from the inside out with the help of Scripture, the UCB Word For Today and praise and sound of worship music playing through my home. I’ve truly been transformed and continue to be transformed by the renewing of my mind. I’m so grateful that God gives us just what we need, when we need it.

I am raising two young girls in a world that often seems to be full of negativity and upheaval. Starting our day listening to Steve and Jez while we have breakfast and chase round the house getting ready for work and school, gives us a great boost, with messages of hope, joy, Jesus’ love ... and some pretty terrible jokes! We are part of Team UCB and hope your ministry reaches other families in their busy hectic lives too.

At UCB we know the power of testimonies. We know that the God who is able to save, deliver and minister to those who
have shared their story with us, is the same God who can save, deliver and minister to you in exactly the same way!
By hearing of how God has worked in the life of others, we pray that you can claim these victories for your own life.
